F. P. Jones' classic introduction to the Alexander Technique. Previously published as Body Awareness in Action New and reset edition With 26 illustrations and 4 colour plates. Introduction by J. McVicker Hunt. Foreword to New Edition by Ted Dimon. New appendix (16 pages) contains Jones' outline for a fifteenth chapter plus sketches and observations from his notebook, published here for the first time.
Frank Pierce Jones (1905-1975) trained with F. M. and A. R. Alexander 1941-44. Drawing on his long association with F. M. and A. R., Jones relates the story and development of the Technique. It is the most comprehensive biography of Alexander's extraordinary life published to date. For twenty- five years Jones conducted original scientic research into the Technique using a variety of methods including multiple-image photography (investigating changes in movement patterns), X-ray photography (examining the head-neck relationship) and electromygrams ( measuring muscles in different head-neck relationships). The most important results are presented and Jones explains some of the underlying mechanisms at work, including how the conscious mind activates anti-gravity reflexes. In "Notes on Teaching," Jones summarizes his teaching experiences and sets out principles for good teaching practice.
Jones always intended his book to be called Freedom to Change, but it was originally published after his death as Body Awareness in Action, in 1976.
The appendices contain: A. The Re-education of Feeling; B. The Organization of Awareness; C. Awareness, Freedom and Muscular Control; D. Learning How to Learn; E. Notes and Drafts.
